72 Chinese millionaires had premature deaths
Beijing, July 24: As many as 72 multi-millionaires in China have either died since 2003 of unnatural causes or have died young, a media report said Sunday. They all had personal assets exceeding 100 million yuan ($15.51 million).
Fifteen were murdered, 17 killed themselves, seven died in accidents, 14 were executed and the other 19 died at an early age due to illness, Shanghai Daily quoted New Culture View newspaper as reporting.
The average age of the super rich who died from sickness was 48. For them, cardiovascular ailments and cancer were the biggest killers.
The media report said that anxiety over a long period of time coupled with high work pressure and excessive social activities contributed to their sickness.
"Chinese people live on average more than 70 years. The millionaires obviously died earlier than average," Ding Chunsheng, director of the health education center in Changchun city, was quoted as saying.
Fifteen of them were done to death for their wealth by either a friend, partner or competitor. IANS
